This is a collection of contemporary carols; a new one is revealed each day. Already settings by composers such as Sally Beamish James Burton, Morten Lauridsen and Howard Skempton have been revealed. Today (11 December) the carol was by Will Todd. There are to be two newly commissioned carols in the collection. John Rutter's 'Suzi's Carol' was behind the door on December 1 and on Christmas Eve there'll be another brand new piece, this time by Debbie Wiseman.
I understand that the full collection will be released as a digital album by Harmonia Mundi on 24 December.
This seems a most imaginative way to lead up to Christmas. You can access the Calendar - including catching up with the windows already opened - at www.orasingers.co.uk
